malware in NX-D?
« on: November 04, 2019, 03:51:08 pm »

Downloaded the latest Nikon NX-D from nikonusa. On installation, my antivirus said this:

Time;Scanner;Object type;Object;Detection;Action;User;Information;Hash;First seen here
11/4/2019 3:37:25 PM;Real-time file system protection;file;C:\Program Files (x86)\Nikon\Ifgls\IFGLS001.exe;ML/Augur trojan;cleaned by deleting;NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM;Event occurred on a new file created by the application: C:\Windows\System32\msiexec.exe (8DFAE441E3885EE393BFCE27B6D1A6E32566E541).;7DA2098B9FF18D607E85B21C978869466B955E13;3/28/2019 4:54:50 PM

The offending code is IFGLS001.exe

The detection method is ML/Augur. This is a machine learning algorithm to detect malware.

I imagine it's some kind of 'remote telemetry' code and has already been discussed in these German photo threads

The whole reason for trying to use NX-D is because I want to see the focus point in the file. Is this possible in Lightroom or other software?
